Summary

An area of c.6.9 hectares was evaluated by trial trenching along the route of a proposed road scheme. Seventy five trenches were excavated, revealing a low density of archaeological features. Where present, these mainly consisted of undated field boundaries but evidence of Roman activity was identified in the south of the site.
A roughly east - west aligned ditch in the north of the site shows on the 3rd edition Ordnance Survey map as a field boundary. The only other incised features present were what appeared to be large extraction pits, probably associated with the nearby brickworks, a possible pond feature and a small number of isolated pits.
